Plants for bees

We are now taking orders for spring-time deliveries:

·      Allium deliveries from February

·      Main stock from end March

·      Pots collection/annuals when frosts stop

All our plants have been carefully selected to ensure that they are amongst the most attractive to bees; we grow and observe each variety before we offer them for sale. And of course they are all grown organically and are peat and pesticide free!

We sell our plants in trays of 6, or sometimes 10, small plants and each tray is enough to fill 1+ square meters of flowering area. All plugs and plants are ready to go straight into the ground and we recommend planting in blocks of 3s or 5s as a big block is more efficient for the bees.

Sorry we only ship to mainland UK and Northern Ireland excluding islands.

Origanum onites (white)

from 10.00

Tray of 10 large plugs or 6 plants

Best plant for honey bees and still good for cooking too! Flowers white from July till end September.

Make sure you let it flower by taking the side leaves for the kitchen, not the tips. The essential oils are meant to help the bees keep the mites away.  Will happily grow amongst grass as well as in the border or herb bed.  Essential oils help bees keep varroa away.
